I've always been interested in where people go to college and what sort of trends pro teams may have when they recruit players. Thus going into this weekend I put that interest into action and created a spreadsheet which separates the 4 remaining NFL teams rosters by conference. I tallied up the total players

If you care to quiz your knowledge on the subject first I set up a 12 question quiz earlier. Additionally if for some reason you desire the spreadsheet simply send me an email and I will have no problem sending it to you.

Now onto the Conference by Conference breakdown sorted by which Conference has the most representatives during this weekends title game matchups.

Big Ten (35)

The Big 10 lead the way with the amount of players with 35 which of course includes the Golden Boy. They just passed over the SEC in total players thanks to the Chargers having two place kickers on the roster from the Big 10 but in reality Big 10 aficionados should be proud as there are a ton of impact players from the 'slow' conference playing this weekend.

Most Notable Players: Tom Brady, Plaxico Burress, Mike Vrabel, Charles Woodson , Shaun Philips, Aaron Kampman
Biggest School Contributor: Ohio State with 6.
NFL Team With Most Players: San Diego with 12.

SEC (34)

While SEC proponents may not be able to brag about having the most players represented this weekend, they'll certainly be able to brag about the Patriots and there vast amount of SEC players. However, the other downward thought is that the Big 10 has vastly more impact players headed into the weekend.

Most Notable Players: Eli Manning, Richard Seymour, Donald Lee
Biggest School Contributor: Tennessee with 8.
NFL Team With Most Players: New England with 13.

ACC (29)

It's amazing to see just how crappy the ACC is now, especially the U, when you look at just how many NFL players they produced only a few years ago.

Most Notable Players: Philip Rivers, Antonio Cromratie, Vince Wilfork, Shawne Merriman
Biggest School Contributor: The U with 7 players.
NFL Team With Most Players: New York with 13.

Big 12 (24)

The Big 12 doubled up with 24 players. The most notable abscence being that no team in the conference championship game has a single player from the Oklahoma Sooners.

Most Notable Players: Wes Welker, Quentin Jammer, Ty Warren, Aaron Ross
Biggest School Contributor: Nebraska with 5.
NFL Team With Most Players: New England with 9.

Pac 10 (21)

When you think Pac 10 you often think high flying offenses and zero defense. But the teams in the Conference Championship games are using big name defenders from the West Coast.

Most Notable Players: Junior Seau, Tedy Bruschi, Antonio Pearce, Igor Olshansky, Nick Barnett
Biggest School Contributor: USC with 6.
NFL Team With Most Players: New York with 8.

MAC (14)

Apparently if you're looking for a dynamic playmaker you should start watching some MAC games.

Most Notable Players: Randy Moss, Antonio Gates, Greg Jennings, Michael Turner
Biggest School Contributor: Marshall with 4.
NFL Team With Most Players: Green Bay and New England with 4.

WAC (13)

The WAC dominated its divorced, the Mountain West, in total players but lacked any true name value.

Most Notable Players: Logan Mankins, Billy Volek, James Jones
Biggest School Contributor: Fresno St. with 6.
NFL Team With Most Players: Green Bay with 7.

Conference USA (10)

The Conference USA is a pretty shat conference right now but don't tell that to that to the Pack and Pats who both plucked out two gems from the fold.

Most Notable Players: Brett Favre, Adalius Thomas, Asante Samual, Atari Bigby,
Biggest School Contributor: Central Florida and Memphis with 3.
NFL Team With Most Players: New York with 4.

Big East (8)

The Big East wouldn't have been so low if the U and BC hadn't exited the conference a few years back. With those two schools the Big East would have sat at 19, however without them they are lower than most 'Mid Major' conferences.

Most Notable Players: Shaun O'Hara, Sam Madison, Kawika Mitchell
Biggest School Contributor: Louisville with 3.
NFL Team With Most Players:

Independents (7)

The Independent schools in 1-A are limited to 4 with Navy and Western Kentucky both contributing one player while Army contributed none.

Most Notable Players: Ryan Grant, Justin Tuck
Biggest School Contributor: Notre Dame with 5.
NFL Team With Most Players: New England with 3.

Mountain West (6)

The Mountain West comes in with a very unimpressive 6 total but does have argaubly the best representative in LaDainian.

Most Notable Players: LT, Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila
Biggest School Contributor: San Diego St. with 2.
NFL Team With Most Players: San Diego with 4.

Sun Belt (5)

The Sun Belt once again shows why no one cares about it after providing the least amount of players in the Conference Championship games.

Most Notable Players: Osi Umenyiora
Biggest School Contributor: Troy with 2.
NFL Team With Most Players: New York with 3.

Division 1-AA (26)

Some big names coming Division 1-AA including two probably Hall of Famers in Strahan and Harrison.

Most Notable Players: Rodney Harrison, Donald Driver, Michael Strahan, Brandon Jacobs
Biggest School Contributor: Western Illinois with 3.
NFL Team With Most Players: New York with 10.

Division 2 or Lower (15)

Surprisingly there are 15 players on these rosters from a Division 2 level or lower football team.

Most Notable Players: Al Harris (Texas A&M Kingsville), Ruvell Martin (Saginaw Valley)
Biggest School Contributor: Shippensburg with 2.
NFL Team With Most Players: Green Bay with 8.

A Day Early cause of the ole vaca coming up. Deal with it.

1. David Nugent - Mr. Nugent, I'm sure the best pick up in the planet is not sending someone a text message of your penis. I could be wrong, I have had a girlfriend for the majority of the year and I've never been the smoothest fella with the ladies but I don't think that typically works.



2. Tim McClelland - In the most pressure packed game of the season where each team is either in or one and done you would hope that the umpiring would not be controversial. Instead McClelland had an awkward and inconsistent strike zone the entire game, his crew blew the Atkins home run ball and McClelland himself got the final game winning play at the plate wrong.



3. Claire Lyte - So you're done with your daily lesson with your coach and former professional tennis player and your mom is a little late to pick you up. What to do? Oh I know how about your coach and you, a 13 year old girl, perform sexual acts together. That's not a good idea.



4. Daniel Barron - What the hell is up with people wanting to have sex with minors this week. 11? What the f*ck is wrong with you dude? He's 11. I hope you enjoy the federal pound me in the ass prison that you will be going to. And why would anyone really want to go to a Dolphins game.

Nothing brightens my day quite like watching a little girl potentially lose a few teeth. I feel so much better right now.

Part of the Reason I just did the Dictionary entry was because I wanted to use it in this post and the other part is that I like the damn Dictionary and always forget to use it. Anyway the Cubs are majorly pulling a kay by printing out their world series tickets prior to even clinching their division.
